I am so excited to share this work!
Using my “I can” statements from last summer and combining that work with work from other sources (referenced in the document), one high school English teacher from Michigan, Robert Belprez, created the following chart as a quick-reference guide for integrating the common core into 9-10 grade ELA classrooms.
What I LOVE about this work is that it was a collaborative, interstate effort stemming from the efforts of many individuals. How 21st Century is that!?!?
What Robert has done with the question stems is an excellent starting point for any ELA classroom because the questions can be easily morphed to meet the standards for other grade levels. This document would also be a great starting place for literacy in the other contents because it gives those non-English folks a reference for the kinds of questions they could be asking. I am just so pleased with this work.
I welcome submissions like this, and I would be happy to share this kind of teacher-initiated effort through my blog.
Kudos, Mr. Belprez!
